Probably the most overlooked part of waterfowl hunting isn’t the decoy spread, the blind, the water depth or any thing like that. It’s taking time to practice shooting. No matter how many years you’ve hunted, how many shots you’ve fired, you need to practice before every season. Even if your aim is still true, it is vital to make yourself familiar with your weapon and it’s function before going to the blind.
Take time to shoot a couple of rounds of skeet. Make it a competition with a friend or hunting buddy to make sure you concentrate and do your best. Nothing is worse that having a big group of ducks cup up over the decoys and have a hunter stand up and miss. Ready….aim….practice…and shoot. But do it before opening morning.
Be on target.
